Do Good Dog:
The beef used in the Do Good Dog™ hot dog comes from SunFed Ranch. SunFed Ranch manages 1.5 million acres, using regenerative practices including holistic managed grazing. The cattle for the Do Good Dog™ hot dog, though, come from specific areas that are assessed and monitored by the Savory Institute, a pioneer in regenerative agriculture and creator of the Land to Market seal. This verification doesn’t just set standards, it measures outcomes, ensuring that the ranch or farm is progressively improving soil health, biodiversity, and ecosystem functions, such as water retention or erosion reduction.

The family farms that we work with are not open for public visitation, but here are some of our videos for you to view to get a sense of the environments there.
